THE WASHINGTON TIMES (Jan. 2014)
"Fascinating" "An interesting story"

"What is helpful in both the book and the documentary is the amount of time and detail Mr. Gallups invests in explaining some of the many elements of Jewish belief, and of the controversial nature of Jesus Christ among observant Jews."

DR. CHUCK MISSLER (Founder Koinonia House Ministries) says:
With great skill, scholarship, and penetrating Scriptural insights, Carl Gallups explodes one of the biggest bombshells of our lifetime. The implications of these astonishing declarations from the most venerated ultra-orthodox rabbi in Israel impacts every one of us - not just those of the traditional Jewish faith. This is a must-read for anyone who takes God seriously.

DR. TIM LEHAYE (Author of the #1 bestselling LEFT BEHIND series) says:
When a much loved Jewish Rabbi dies at 108 years of age, shortly after leaving a secret message revealing the true identity of the Messiah of Israel, it is news of worldwide significance. This is a well-written story worth reading!

This book is a wonderful resource in explaining to unbelievers of the Lord, Jesus Christ, and God's plan for humanity.

I actually would give this book 3 and a half stars. I'm very familiar with the work of Pastor Carl Gallups through his ministry on Youtube. I frequently view his videos and ever since he announced this book, he's promoted it like crazy. In one interview, he stated that it is not only a Christian apologetics book, but a book aimed at atheists and agnostics. I just finished reading it, and I'd like to discuss what I disliked first.

I don't think any atheist would read this book from cover to cover. Not necessarily because they'll scoff at his evidence, but simply because I feel Carl takes too many shots at atheists. By that I mean he overgeneralizes the secular community by assuming all of them willfully choose to deny and try to refute the existence of God. Not all secularists believe in the evolutionary theory, let alone accept it as fact. I just feel that he could have spoke of them a little bit more objectively. He could have also done a better job convincing the reader why Christianity is the only true religion.

I study Christian apologetics a lot so most of what I read were things I already knew. That's why I personally feel the book wasn't that groundbreaking. Let me discuss the things I did like though.

He made some very good points showing the evolutionary theory to be far from settled science. It actually makes a lot of sense why he and a lot of other Christians claim evolution to be a religion. Read the book to understand how. I also liked how he ties in Christian beliefs and real science with vivid and thought-provoking analogies. He had quite a few great arguments against the common questions atheists and agnostics ask like "Why would God allow evil and suffering in the world if He's good?

The Magic Man in the Sky is an insightful, entertaining defense of the Christian faith. Carl Gallups delivers a dynamic, unapologetic stance for God and Intelligent Design. He uses science(such as quantum physics), analogies, the Scripture, and history to show the irrefutable proof of God's existence. Never again let an atheist tell you that you can't prove the existence of God! The Christian reader will be encouraged to find that the Bible can be proven and the evidence God has displayed in History as well as His creation. The reader who is unsure of God's existence will be given undeniable proof and God's plan for salvation. This book will certainly be enjoyed by all who read it!

I really liked this book. Good factual substance written clearly enough for a part time reader like myself. Not only did it help build my faith, but allow some solid answers for my non Christian friends. There are several people who begin a faith in Christ because someone gave them this book.If you are a christian, I would recommend getting two, one for yourself and another for that person you would want to reach.

A relevant book for those who wish to deepen their faith and know that their faith is based on truth, historical facts, true scientific information and logical thinking. It is a great book on apologetics - giving a defense for the Christian faith. I would have liked the author to use a more modern version of the Bible when he included quotes as the old King James version (which he used) can be cumbersome to read and takes longer to digest. Overall I enjoyed and found this book easy reading, interesting with thought-provoking examples.

It will surely help a believer defend the faith. A good book that takes the time to explain the faith using sound logic & reason that anyone could follow. I enjoyed it & recommended it to my 13yr old. What a good book. Now I feel better prepared to defend the truth!

...it is clearly written, as is openly admitted by Gallups, for the church body whom he pastors. That being the case it's intended to strengthen the faith and confidence of believers and, specifically, Protestant YECs. Anyone who has a strong prior interest in christian apologetics will probably have heard most, if not all, of his arguments before. As far as I can tell he hasn't introduced that many new tools for the hardcore apologist but instead has provided a general overview to the hardworking layperson (who wouldn't have time to read many books on the subject) of how to set their faith up against constant attack. That is the strength of this book, that it provides an excellent basis for further study and a prima facie practicality to biblical Christian apologetics. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating is that it wouldn't, IMHO, have any effect on the hardline atheist that might stumble upon this book in search of a reason to believe. Then again, they aren't the intended audience. All in all, great book sir!

I really enjoyed reading this book and plan to read it again after I catch up on my other reading. It was well written and explained everything in such a way that it leaves no doubt for anyone who is a skeptic of the Christian faith. This is a book that should be in everyone's library of books.
